Boucher farewell postponed



Cricket South Africa (CSA) and Castle Lager’s farewell day for Mark Boucher scheduled to take place on Day Three of the Sunfoil Series test match between the Proteas and the New Zealand Black Caps at Sahara Park Newlands has been postponed at the request of the former Proteas wicketkeeper.

It will now take place during the Sunfoil test Series between the Proteas and Pakistan next month.

“Mark has made the request following the sudden death last night of former Western Province cricketer John Commins who is the father of his agent, Donne Commins,” commented CSA Acting CEO Jacques Faul. “We are sorry to hear of this tragedy and extend condolences on behalf of the CSA family to the Commins family and friends.”

“Donne has been very close to me for most of my career and has been much more to me than a business partner,” commented Boucher. “She has been incredibly supportive over the past few months in particular during which time she has been a tremendous pillar of support.”
